I think this year's Pathology Visions program is going to be excellent with more news about the program to follow shortly.  If you have attended before, I think you will find the topics for this year's speakers very engaging, current and practical.  If you haven't been before, this may be one program to include among your meetings this Fall.

World-renown pathologist, Dr. Mahul B. Amin, will discuss this and more at the 2011 Pathology Visions Conference. Dr. Amin's keynote address will also focus on the role of the pathologist in contemporary health care and discuss the contributions, strengths and limitations of traditional microscopy.
